Why Is It Called Gen Z

Zoomer is another way of referring to Generation Z, as those born between the mid-90s and early 2010s are called, although the beginning and end of the birth years are still a subject of debate among academics and social analysts.


Why is it called Gen Z then?

The term zoomers is a nod to the name boomers, the nickname given to the “baby boom” generation born between 1944 and 1964. First of all, zoomers are taking over the world, numerically. By some estimates, they already represent 32% of the world’s population. While millennials (born between 1981 and 1996) are still the world’s largest adult group (the world’s average age is around 30), zoomers already account for 41% of the world’s workforce, according to the World Bank.
